G               G           G                     G
What if we went to Italy, a suitcase of books and one bag a piece
        C         C                       G     G
for the summer; I don't speak a word of Italian
  D                     D                D                 D
Except for Campari and soda for two, how much is a lira?  Yes, a villa will do
C              C              G    G
  And a breeze, in Tuscany please

What if we spent all of our days improving our minds, learning new ways
to be lazy; it wouldn't be too much of a strain
Relax after breakfast till lunch comes around, I can't wait for dinner,
  oh I need to lie down
And refuel, out by the pool

C                          D
What if the ancients were lazy like us
    Bm                         Em
Too blissed out to paint, to sketch or to sculpt
Am                     B7
Just as relaxed as the tower of Pisa
Em                      G7
  Not ever missing that old Mona Lisa
C                     D
What if we never got back on the plane
    Bm                        Em
As summer turned colder and then warmer again
Am                      D
Losing all track of the passing of years
        C                      D
Till it no longer mattered how long we'd been here

C   D   Bm   Em     Am   B7   C   D   D

What if we went to Italy, maybe next year, just you and me
for the summer; I still can't speak any Italian
But words are replaced under Siena skies by nothing so much as a nod,
  and a sigh,
C           C                  G.
  And a wish to be always like this
